What's the JSON file structure for import?

Hi guys,

I’m trying out Contentful currently and I’m a little baffled that the docs for import/export don’t explicitly show the file structure for importing content.

The docs say, somewhat unclearly:

Note that you also need to reference a JSON file that contains the exported content. The expected format is the same as the export format from the export tool above.

I assume that should say imported content rather than exported. But what does it mean about expected format being the same as the export format? Does that mean I need a file like this (total guess follows)?

{
	"entries": [
		{
			"myContentTypeId": [
				{
					"field1Id": "foo",
					"field2Id": "bar"
				},
				{
					"field1Id": "foo 2",
					"field2Id": "bar 2"
				},
				...
			]
		}
	]
}

Any help appreciated,
Thanks
